Ready To Rumble…

I’ve loved Wrestling all of my life. From a young child I grew up on Saturday lunchtime Wrestling on ITV, watching sports legend Dickie Davies call matches involving such British luminaries as Big Daddy or Giant Haystacks, enjoying the pantomime and pageantry that Wrestling gave me. I knew it wasn’t ‘real’, but at the same time I knew that these guys [&hellip
